Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel) will open its doors on 17 April 2019, offering travellers a world-class tourist destination and extending the already impressive offering of Changi Airport.
Featuring a unique steel and glass façade, the much-anticipated Jewel will be located landside and seamlessly attached to Changi Terminal 1, with easy access from Terminals 2 and 3. Jewel will offer all travellers a vast array of options to dine, shop, play and stay, for hours on end.
Mr. Ivan Tan, Group Senior Vice President, Corporate & Marketing Communications at Changi Airport Group said: “Jewel’s unique mix of lush greenery and curated offerings that are a first in the region will add a new dimension to the overall #OnlyAtChangi experience for Australians. We are excited to welcome more travellers to Changi Airport, to a medley of new experiences integrating nature, play and retail.”
Four-storey garden and a playground for everyone
Jewel will offer a unique line-up of attractions, including the Forest Valley: four storeys of verdant landscaping, providing the perfect respite between shopping and dining stops and the 40-metre-tall Rain Vortex. Opening in June 2019, the Canopy Park – located on the topmost level of Jewel – will give visitors an array of play attractions, gardens and walking trails. Some of the play attractions include Canopy Mazes, a Bouncing Net and a Walking Net, a 50-metre-long Canopy Bridge and Discovery Slides, a ‘four-slides-in-one sculptural playground’ that children and the young-at-heart can enjoy.
Suite of aviation facilities
Jewel will also have its own 130-room YOTELAIR Singapore Changi Airport, ideal for busy travellers who need flexible check-in and check-out timings. Also available from April, passengers with late departures from Changi Airport will enjoy the convenience of early check-in for their flights, with storage available even for their hand-carry luggage.
Featuring over 280 shops and eateries, Jewel will offer several first-in-Singapore brands such as Shake Shack, Pokémon Center Singapore, Burger & Lobster, Läderach and Pink Fish. Foodies with a taste for exotic cuisine need look no further with the introduction of TONITO, a Peruvian concept offering classic ceviche and iconic Pisco Sour cocktails. Singapore’s “dame of cooking”, Violet Oon, will also open her largest restaurant to date, offering popular local delicacies such as Dry Laksa, Beef Rendang, Satays and Roti Jala.
Well-loved Singaporean brands
Well-loved homegrown brands such as Naiise and Supermama will also be in residence alongside national icon, Tiger Beer, which will unveil a first-in-the-world Tiger Street Lab offering exclusive-to-Jewel seasonal brews, inspired by elements of Singapore and fuelled by local ingredients.
